Equality and Diversity in Employment
This guidance has been produced by the Careers & Enterprise Centre at Durham University to support students and graduates in respect of career planning and employment. Our service is confidential (in accordance with the University safeguarding policies) and impartial.
Our individual diversity guides (linked on the right) provide further information relevant to the protected characteristics within the Equality Act 2010 and related areas of concern and support available.
Book an appointment with a Careers Adviser if you require any further support in respect of your personal circumstances - we're here to help.
We host a series of diversity-themed events within our annual Include programme, which is exclusively available to Durham students and graduates. Find out more here. In addition to our Include programme activity, we also share relevant external events with a diversity focus on our Student Services Portal and social media channels (see @careersatdurham on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.)
Diversity Opportunities and Initiatives
Our individual diversity guides feature a range of diversity opportunities, initiatives and support available to students and graduates from diverse backgrounds.
We also actively share ad hoc opportunities with a diversity focus on our Facebook, Instagram and Twitter pages @careersatdurham - initiatives can include competitions, work experience and insight days, and are typically advertised by employers and specialist support organisations.
